Some of my favorite uses of essential oils

Spark Naturals is shipping all orders until the 17th. That is amazing! They are also having some other deals that are unbelievable. Their link is on the left hand of this blog. Sorry I am still learning how to do this blog thing or I would put a link here.

And now down to business, I thought I would give a quick update on how my oil journey is going. We have built up our supply a lot and have found a few things that are amazing. Here's a fast rundown:

This recipe is from Rebecca at

Sorry I can't figure out how to make this a direct link yet.

Sore Throat & Tonsillitis Relief Blend

20 drops Lavender
30 drops Melaleuca
10 drops Ginger
4 drops Lemon
~ fractionated coconut oil

Add EOs to a 5ml (1/6 oz) glass roller bottle. Next, top off the bottle with fractionated coconut oil, snap on the roller top and gently blend by tipping the bottle upside down.

Roll the blend over the throat area 3x daily, for additional support massage the blend on the upper abdomen and upper back too. Continue the protocol until symptoms subside and beyond by 2 to 3 days.

I didn't have the ginger but just rubbing the mix I made on the outside of the throat is amazing. It takes away the pain!! Wow! It doesn't cure it right away, but it works.

Another one I am really loving is the Respire Blend which is the Oil of the month for December. It has really helped with my kids' cough.

I have a experimented with a few others that I will have to talk about later

Thanks for reading.

Trying New Things

For a while now, I have been really disappointed with the healthcare industry and government. I hate how simple medical procedures are so ridiculously priced. I am a penny pincher and watch where most of our money goes and this drives me crazy. When I get a bill for $150 or more for 5 minutes talking to my doctor, I can't stand it. So, I have been investigating other options.

Another thing that has lead to some recent changes in my life is pretty insignificant, but hopefully, you will see where I am going with this. Here's the story. We had some name brand mosquito repellent in the cupboard, sitting inside an extra door shelf from our fridge. Somehow, the can leaked. The stuff that came out of the can, melted and liquified the hard plastic fridge thing and the plastic coating on our cupboard shelves. This kind of freaked me out. We put this on our skins and on our kid's skin. That can't be safe.

Things two things in our lives have led me to investigate other options to treat simple life problems. I started following different blogs and researching oils. A couple of years ago, I went to a different essential oils class and was really fascinated, but didn't want to pay the really high prices. Last spring, I tried a different brand oil with my croupy little girl and was fairly pleased. Then recently, I found a blog promoting a new company, Spark Naturals! Their cost for essential oils is great! They also had an Oil of The Month Club which was really affordable and helped me start building my supply. I am hooked. Even if I can save our family one trip to the doctor, it will pay for all my oils.

I then found how I can now become an Affiliate of this company and give my friends a discount! So there it is. I have never done something like this before, but I am excited to share my journey with essential oils with you. I am not completely blog savey, so I don't know how to put a pretty picture with the link, but here you go anyway.
